The FBI is investigating the turmoil at the Houston Zoo caused by spam-like text messages.
The Houston Zoo boomed with thousands of calls over the last two weeks from people who had suffered from a circulating message.
Zoo officials received about 4,000 calls, from 300 to 350 calls per day.
“Somebody was talking about you,” plus the number attached; or "Hey y is someone calln me and lookn for u n askn me where r u at n where u live heres tha # 713 555 650 tell then to stop calln me" – was the content of the message received by thousands of people.
So, if you get such a message, just ignore it and delete it.
The FBI has a version that the turmoil resulted from hacked address books of some cellular phone users.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
